Discussion and summary of survey results
Regarding work values (how to perceive work), it was found that younger generations place importance not only on making a living, but also on improving their skills, contributing to people and society, and whether it leads to their own growth. In particular, the percentage of people in their 20s who emphasized “being useful to people and society” was significantly higher than the overall response. It can be said that one of the ways to increase the engagement of young employees is to clearly convey the perspective of how the company’s products and services will contribute to people and society. When recruiting young talent, including students, it is thought that deepening the perspective of specifically asking “who you want to help and how” through work will lead to motivation for work after joining the company.
More than half of all age groups answered affirmatively to the question, “Do you want to work hard at work?” Among them, 59.4% were the highest among those in their twenties. In addition, looking at the level of satisfaction and expectations for careers by generation, the majority of respondents in their 20s responded positively, suggesting that the younger generation tends to have a positive outlook on work. increase.
The en Human Resource Education Foundation will continue to work on career programs and award projects for university students in order to further increase the number of young people who enthusiastically take on the challenge of solving social issues and organizations where such human resources can shine.
